Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. It was first launched by EURODIS and its Council of National Alliances in 2008, to help raise awareness with decision makers and the general public on the impact rare diseases have on our lives. Our goal is to influence policy makers, public authorities, industry representatives, researchers, health professionals and anyone who has a genuine interest in rare diseases.
